fhoenix - I agree wholeheartedly and, if you notice, I stayed away from the "what is Conservative and what is Liberal" thread.  Obviously, there are many angles to such a debate and people fall into many different categories.  That said, I quoted a Republican and was told I quoted a RINO.  I was hoping I could be educated as to the difference between a Republican and a RINO in order to better understand the views of others.  Of course I agree with you and our other posters that we should not try to label different people which is why I pay little attention to those who try to label different new organizations.  It is a complete waste of time.  But for this small group that converses on a daily basis, I thought maybe they could define the word for my benefit.  Like I said earlier, I should have directed the question only to those who use the term RINO.

If I understand fhoneix correctly, one can be a Republican, pro choice, and not be a RINO.  So says Bill too.  Now if one of the members who uses the term RINO will agree, I'll have a little better understanding of the definition of the word in our exchanges.

Dewey, I believe you will soon see that their are actually 3 parties. The Democrats, the Republicans, and Tea Party Conservatives. If you ever wished for the downfall of the Republican Party, you may well be satisfied, as will many Conservatives. If you are a Liberal RINO in the Northeast, you may soon feel endangered. If you are a Tea Party Candidate riding the wave, you may be elevated. Just don't expect to be supported because you wear a label, you might actually have to earn your position in government next election. I think that is a good thing.

woody - I don't care how many Parties there are as I'm simply trying to understand how folks who use the term RINO are defining them.  My hypotheses is that people who like the term RINO really mean to say the three parties are Democrats, RINO's, and TPC.  I'm suggesting the majority on the Right believe if you're not part of the TPC, you're a RINO.  Am I right?  I'm not saying this is so but I think I'm hearing it is so.

I am lumping the Northeastern Rino into a group with the establishment GOP. The establishment GOP gave us weak Republican Presidential Candidates like Bob Dole, and John McCain. It was their turn, they had walked the party line. I call BS, it is time to change our country's political system, and I venture it will not be done by traditional Democrats, or Republican candidates. The change will come by a grass roots organization. It will not be Republican, nor Democrat.

You rang? To paraphrase Sherman,

This ain't happening:
